The DA PAM 670-1 4-9 a. & b. specify how the ACU trousers should be worn:

a. The combat uniform trousers are worn buttoned and with a belt. Soldiers will wear the trousers tucked into the top of the boots or bloused using the drawstrings at the bottom of the trousers or using commercial blousing devices if the trousers are not tucked into the boots. The legs of the trousers must be long enough to allow blousing over the combat boots. When bloused, the trousers will not extend below the third eyelet from the top of the boot.
b. When buttoned, the trousers must fit easily at the waist. The bottom edges in the front of the coat will protrude if the coat is too snug at the waist and hips. The crotch of the trousers should not bind. Trousers must fit loosely enough at seat to allow squatting and bending.

SD-Supply offers the full catalog of sizes for the ACU-Female uniforms. Females may choose to wear either male or female sizes, depending on their body types, but the female sizes are different to accommodate the female hips, and use different measurements than the standard male ACU sizes.

DA PAM 670-1 4-7 o. The ACU–female is an authorized alternate ACU designed in a wider range of sizes. If worn, it must have the same general appearance and fit as prescribed for the ACU.

Reference the Sizing Charts below when choosing your size. The first chart is the standard ACU Size Chart. The second chart is the Women's ACU Size Chart. The standard ACU Size Chart also applies to the Improved Hot Weather Combat Uniform, which may be worn by males and females, but is only available in male sizes.
